Before the White Man Came

See her standing
She is alive
A gatherer in the wild woods
The keeper of the hearth

See her singing
She is alive
Sage and rosemary nesting in her hair
A fragrance in the wind

See her dancing
She is alive
The nurturer of her people
A cultivator of the earth

See her praying
She is alive
Earth mother sculpted
A portent of all that is good

Before the white man came.
